An SSA forum

Statistics are used by government, industry and the media. Statisticians sometimes have to deliver unpopular or controversial messages couched in complex numbers.

How do we talk about statistics to people who lack a technical understanding of the field? What makes statistics news? And, how do you ensure your numbers are used correctly?

Join us for an online discussion and Q&A with a panel featuring Ron Sandland, former Head of CSIRO Maths and Stats and former chair of AMSI. Joining Ron will be Tory Shepherd, former political editor for the Adelaide Advertiser, and William Milne, Director of the National Centre for Crime and Justice Statistics.

The forum will be moderated by Niall Byrne from Science in Public.

This is a free online event for members of SSA and ABS employees, but they will still need to register. For everyone else the registration fee is $50. Please find the registration link here. Places are limited (100, including presenters).
